My Top Films of all Time

All the best films I've seen since (pretty recently) switching to rating on a 100-point scale- none before, it wouldn't be fair to include films I can't quantify. Ratings are in the notes. I do definitely need to re-watch some of my old favorites from when I was little, however- Rear Window, The Manchurian Candidate, Double Indemnity, Duck Soup, Bride of Frankenstein, Once Upon a Time in the West and The Birds stick out in my memory.
I do notice some blind spots here, such as my lack of wider recognition for Asian films, and really foreign films in general, but, at least for a high schooler, swaths of cinema still unwatched, this is a decent list!
